And in the spirit of humour...

And now for something completely different….

After all the thought-provoking comments on the last post about leadership, I thought I’d lighten things up a bit… (and to be true to my theme of 2006…. Strong body, light spirit… I figure that regular injections of humour are allowed; indeed, advisable!)

Z. sent me this one this morning… one of those e-mail funnies that goes around. I don’t usually forward stuff like this on, but for some reason, this one gave me a good chuckle, so I thought I’d share it here.

As Z. said herself, “Doubtless this will be less than compelling for non-drinker types …” So I’ll beg forgiveness now if you’re a teetotaler…

16 Reasons to serve red wine at work

  1. It's an incentive to show up.
  2. It leads to more honest communications.
  3. It reduces complaints about low pay.
  4. Employees tell management what they think, not what they want to hear.
  5. It encourages car pooling.
  6. Increases job satisfaction because if you have a bad job, you don't care.
  7. It eliminates vacations because people would rather come to work.
  8. It makes fellow employees look better.
  9. It makes the cafeteria food taste better.
  10. Bosses are more likely to hand out raises when they are wasted.
  11. Salary negotiations are a lot more profitable.
  12. Employees work later since there's no longer a need to relax at the bar.
  13. It makes everyone more open with their ideas.
  14. It eliminates the need for employees to get drunk on their lunch break.
  15. Employees no longer need coffee to sober up.
  16. Sitting "bare butt" on the copy machine will no longer be seen as “gross”.

Well, yeah, obviously. How did you think Chive persuaded me to stay home with the kids all these years?

I definitely think a little red wine would go a long way in the work place. I may use several of your points in my proposal...

I'll check with the boss and keep you posted!
